Reforming Illinois' Constitution

Five state universities in Illinois were just downgraded to Junk Status with the rest of the state close behind. Does Illinois need a Constitutional Convention to completely re-write the State Constitution? If we have a balanced budget provision in the State Constitution, why don't we have a balanced budget? What reforms could - and should - be made through constitutional amendments? Short of a constitutionally balanced budget is there a pathway to budget resolution before the 2018 election?  Jacob Huebert, Senior Attorney at Liberty Justice Center (An Illinois Constitution for the 21st Century) joins Dan and Amy to discuss.
